As a former professional ice hockey player and wrestler, Paul Gagné has always had an interest in using the body’s natural systems to obtain peak performance. He currently trains high-level athletes using Posturology, Sports Physiology, and Strength Conditioning along with a Japanese style nutrition and diet regiment. He advises to only take supplements that activate the body’s natural systems, but only if you really need to.
